Did The Flight Deck Say Barbecue?
Memorial Day is upon us which means several things:
We have the chance to honor those who gave their lives to protect and serve the United States of America. The Flight Deck thanks those brave men and women who have gave their all.
Not too long after the weekend is when we remember those other little things about summer. It gets hot! Nobody really wants to cook. From early May to late June, New Englanders contend with the biting phenomenon known as black flies. Those pesky little buggers you don’t see coming that bite any available skin surface. Going any distance means contending with road construction and traffic. But…there is still barbecue, salads and those nifty drinks. So what’s a grilled-meat-lover supposed to do to get their fix? Don’t you worry-The Flight Deck has got you covered!
Come in to our comfortable, air conditioned restaurant and take in the beautiful views of the scenic Monadnock area through our glass wall. Not only can you take in stunning scenery, but you can watch the planes coming and going right just feet from our door. There aren’t any traffic jams at the airport and nary a pesky bug to be found!
Settle in and start your meal off with one of those fun tropical drinks like a creamsicle margarita or a coco loco. Better yet, try one of our super fun rum buckets-yum! Are you feeling it? All the summer joys without any of the aggravation.
Now that you’re cool and relaxed, you’re ready to tackle the menu. What will it be? When summer hits is there anything better than a perfect burger? The Flight Deck has got your back! Try one of our specialty burgers, like the Black n Blue burger made with cracked pepper and blue cheese. You really can’t beat the Southern Flight burger with bacon, cheddar and a perfectly cooked egg if you want summer decadence. Of course you can always build your own burger. All our burgers start with our custom blend of short rib, brisket and chuck. Starting with the best at the base, you can add any topping that screams summer to you. We have it all and you can get it with a side of fries, or if you want that outdoor feel, get some cole slaw or potato salad instead.
Maybe grill season is pork season for you and boy, have we got you covered there too. Have our pulled pork sandwich, slow roasted pork, pulled to perfect tenderness, layered with barbecue sauce and cole slaw, piled high on an artisanal brioche roll. Another worthy contender is the hogwings- our slow roasted pork shanks cooked to fall off the bone perfection. Make it the ideal summer swine meal with hogwings for an appetizer and the pulled pork sandwich for your entrée.
Maybe grilling means something a little more elegant for your tastes. We won’t leave you hanging! Try the grilled shrimp dinner which includes the soup or salad bar or one of our superb steaks. Warning! This may be a difficult choice as we have NY Strip (the king of steaks), ribeye (considered the crown jewel of steaks) or sirloin (best cooked medium-rare). All from locally owned market Gomarlo’s.
It’s summer, so don’t cheat yourself of dessert. Check out one of our favorites like the Bad Altitude cake or the Salted Caramel cheesecake. Of course, there is the summer classic-the sundae bar! It’s the only sundae bar in Keene and what’s summer without ice cream? Feel free to dig in.
If you really love those warm summer breezes and dining al fresco, our patio is open and ready for you to enjoy. It’s all the pleasures of summer without any of the work.
The Flight Deck wants you to start your summer off right: tropical drinks, stunning mountain views, fabulous food and decadent desserts. You’ll be glad you did.
